Married twenty-three years to my wonderful husband and best friend. We have 3 "home-grown" kids, 1 hand-picked by God from Africa and 1 very hyper-active dog. Our life is blessed. We are a close knit family with strong Christian beliefs. And just recently we have bought ourselves a farm. Do we know what we are doing? Nope. Come along with us on our journey…you might have a great laugh or two.

Progress...slow, but it's progress

Many people have asked us lately about the progress of our adoption. As of today, we have filled out the TONS OF QUESTIONS needed for the homestudy and are now waiting on one thing...the FBI fingerprint report to come in. Nothing like waiting on the government to hurry..."ain't happenin' fast".

On a positive note, some progress is being made. Our social worker has contacted us and we have scheduled our two visits with her (one in the office and one in our home) to be made this month. Also, we are taking our 2 of the 3 needed "parents in process" training classes needed next weekend. Ahhh...progress...it made be little slow but we're moving closer to our goal. As my father would often tell me..."never take your eye off the ball". So with a little luck and a whole lot of prayers we hope that the homestudy is done sometime the end of this month, early next month. Then it's on to the next thing....the dossier.

  1. Hi! I noticed you are requesting twins.

    We adopted 4 yr old twins 9 months ago. We didn't request them, but were THRILLED when we were matched with them. It has been such a blessing, and I think the fact that they were siblings/twins has been a huge factor in their great attaching to the family.

    Have fun waiting on the government.
